Review: Dr. Scholl’s Custom Fit Orthotics

Review: Dr. Scholl’s Custom Fit Orthotics

My feet are the most disliked part of my body. I appreciate that they are probably the most hardworking part of my body but they are just not very attractive. They are wide and almost flat so long walks and other exercises involving being on my feet for a long time can become very uncomfortable. I used to work for a podiatrist when I was in high school and even then he said I could probably benefit from orthotics. Something…

Bought Online: Trench Coat

Bought Online: Trench Coat

My daughter ordered the black version of this coat online as part of our after Christmas shopping spree. Since it snowed on Christmas evening and it stuck around the following day, we didn’t do our annual ‘day after’ shopping foray. I was a bit relieved, really.

It was cute,…

Ready for After-Christmas Shopping?

Merry Christmas! It’s not quite over yet, so I can still wish you and your family a joyous season, can’t I? I’m assuming you’ve opened your presents by now and you’re probably like me, vegging out in front of the TV or the computer, moaning about how much food you ate. Today was a nice day spent with family and I hope that you got to spend a full day with yours too. Tomorrow, it will be another matter. It…
